The curtains part and disclose a group of students loaded on a Lovell Bus. The pupils in this environment soon forget their new role — promotion to sophomore dignity. They are boisterous and gay in the June heat. Barbara: Gosh, how many new things we've learned this last year! Remember how it took me epiite a while to get accustomed to the idea of not going home for lunch? Bob: You're lucky if that's all that happened to you. If you could have been with me when f sauntered into a senior study room! Boy, the looks those seniors gave me! Barbara: What a swell track team we had this year! The team had a wonder- ful time on their nip to New York after winning the Class B title. Bob: Hey, J wonder if they still have those gruesome pictures that were taken for the office record? Barbara: Some permanent record, what? Our marks, plus those pictures! Answer — minus. Bob: Did you go to the Senior Play, "Growing Pains," this year? Barbara: Yes, I did. That was certainly a real success under the helpful super- vision of Miss Chase. Bob: We had a great deal of excitement this year. Wally Lang's being captain of the football team sure helped score twenty-nine straight wins before losing a game to Quincy. Barbara: Did yo\x go to the Senior Prom? That was really sharp. Bob: Yes, and f was late getting there because of a Hat that night on my friend's car. Barbara: That was tough. Speaking of luck, I' 11 bet the fellows on the football team missed not having the banquet this year; but during war times a shortage of food is to be expected. Bob: Remember the new Aviation Course that was introduced with Mr. Ghiorse as chief pilot? c^Vj Page Fifteen Barbara: Of course we couldn't take- it our freshman year, but some ol the boys wanted to. Bob: If I remember correctly, Ralph Amabile and Alan Dewey flubbed around some on the baseball diamond. Barbara: Not to change the subject, Bob Vergobbi was our sole representative on the wrestling team and Slim LuscOmbe also made a hit on the track and cross country teams. Bob: Well, we've certainly enjoyed out Inst years, especially when wc had some say voting for the Student Council Members. It was excitin» to find out that Eddie Caracciolo, Jean Cross, Alan Dewey, Margie Kelly, and you wen elected. (Scream of brakes) Barbara: Here we go again! Bob: What do you mean? Here we stop again. This is getting monotonous: but it's walking for us again. What crates! mm // 3 ACT II A group of newly graduated sophomores, drinking cokes, are seated on stools as the curtain parts. Filly: Going out for cheerleader again this fall, Keby? Keby: Sure, I certainly want to continue supporting our various teams. They've certainly done well this year. Bobby: Our track team is doing swell. They got second place in the State meet at Boston. Keby: As usual our football team got top honors, working with Coach Arlanson. Filly: Bruce made a good showing, piling up all those touchdowns. Keby: The Athletic Banquet wasn't so hot this year, though. We certainly hated to say good-bye to H. Arlanson. Filly: All our teams need backing. We mustn't forget our basketball and baseball squads. Bobby: You can say that again. Our teams have as much spirit as any of the other South Shore teams. Filly: The Weymouth Highlights was a real success. Keby: You bet it was! The boys all over the world got a "kick" when they got a newspaper from their good old alma mater. Page Sixteen r \&-? Bobby: I think thai the strangest evenl was the hoisting of an Army training plane onto the second floor. Filly: I'll never forgei that. The kids taking the Aviation (ionise were as excited as a gang of jitterbugs at a jam session. Keby: The skit of Coac h Arlanson's life, pul on by the loot hall players, was a howl. Bobby: We had a lot of swell activities dining the year. The Victory Dance in December and the Senior Play, "Woman of Fifteen," were both good. Filly: Don't forget the Senior Prom. The committee did a keen job and helped to make it a real success. Bobby: I think we elected a swell student council in our freshman year. Filly: You're not kidding! Eddie, Barb, Al, Margie, and Jean did a grand job. Klby: Well, 1 guess it's time to go home to supper. I hope we have as good a time next year as we had this. Bobby: Just think! We're really upper classman now. Filly: I can hardly wait to get back. So long, kids! ACT III As the curtains part we behold two important juniors, chewing the rag in their accustomed haunt. The checkerhoard has heen pushed aside as a clanging upsets their meditations. Ralphie: Just think, Jean, we have only one more year of high school! Jean: It all seems to have gone so quickly, although I will say that we've had some pretty good times these past years. Rai.phie: I'll say. It certainly was an honor to be elected Class President; and I know Dick, Barb, and Frank feel the same about their offices. Remember the swell Junior Party we had? The Junior Nominating Committee and the Junior Party Committee certainly gave us a time to remember. Jean: That party really brought out some of the good talent that wc have in our class. Eleanor McCafferty's songs were wonderful. c^SV. Page Seventeen RAlphie: How about Betsy Clark's dancing? Jean: Yes, she was all right. And wasn't Lambie Koopman a riol s nging "Second Hand Rose"? (Dick McCarthy and George M(Kinn\ enter) Dick: Hey, what are you two doing all the talking about? Jean: Oh, hi, kids! We were just reminiscing over all the good times we had our junior year. Dick: We had a pretty good football team this year, didn't we? Bobby Clark sun played some swell games. He's in the Air Corps now. Ralphie: Bruce Hunt was one of our stars. The other teams d dn't have an\ man to equal him. Jean: Keby and Barb added their efforts with Marge and Shirley as cheerleaders to support the team. Topsy Dewey, Nancy Page, Evelyn Anderson, and I were subs. Dick: Remember the Hingham game? The field was almost a swamp. It was so wet that Weymouth had to start the second hall in old suits. Rai.phie: Our wrestling team was good, too. For such a little fellow, "Diver" Swan certainly put up a good light. Dick: Our track team won the Class B State Championship again. We had plent\ of stars: "Slim" Luscombe and Bob Dominy, both in the serv ice: together w.th Roger Freeman, John Donovan, and Carl MacKen/ie. Ralphie: Bob Dominy won every race in cross country. George: It seems to me the basketball team was pretty good. Don't forget Bob Kjellman and Bruce Hallgren played on the team. They're from Trade, you know. Jean: Everybody got a lot of enjoyment from the concert. Mr. Jack certainly did a wonderful job for his first year at Weymouth High. George: Four kids in our class at trade sang in the choir: Paul Doble, Presley Fostei . John McCarthy, and Darrell Smith. Well, see you later, kids! Jean: Oh, going down to see your girl? George: Silence! Jean: Silence is golden. (Exit, George) Dick: I hear the Student Council next year is really going to town. With Frank Aiello, Helen Andersson, Ed Caracciolo, Marge Kelly and Barbara Loud on the council, they ought to fetch the corner, too. Ralphie: I thought the seniors were pretty good to invite us on their outing. Dick: I wonder how many actually suffered ill effects from that ti\p to Province- town? Ralphie: How about the effects that graduation had on (he poor ushers. Frank, you and I suffered almost as much as the graduates; and I guess the others did, too. Page Eighteen 'XJi-' Jean: Gee, we did have some good Limes didn'i we? I wonder il our last year will be as eventful as our junioi year. ACT IV The house lights dim for the fourth and last act, the foot lights come up as Ed Caracciolo, president ol the .Student Council and Margie Kelly, secretary, step in front of the curtain. Ed: Well, Marge, after four years of work and worry we finally made il. Marge: We've really had an interesting and successful year. En: Our football team got off to a slow start, but did all right lor itself under the leadership of Paul Sweeney. Marge: The Thanksgiving rally was one I'll never forget. Remember Jimmie Casey as Ping Pong, the Chinaman? En: Do I! Mr. Ghiorse and Miss Toomey did a lot of work on that. Marge: Ed, how about giving a resume of the games. Ed: Curtain! Pake it away Legion Field. The band sitting in the grandstand strikes up "Maroon and Gold" under the masterful baton of Mr. Jack. In front of the stands are six drum majorettes in dazzling white uniforms led by Kay Madden in her maroon and gold. The cheerleaders break out in "The Weymouth Locomotive" led by co-head cheerleaders Margie Kelley and Shirley Osborn. The cheer. ng squad is going to lose five pretty nice members: Marge, Shirley. Barbara Loud, Helen Keblis, and Jean Keohan. And now the game has started. Hank Minasian centres the ball, Captain Bruce Hunt gets it. and he's oil lor a touchdown. Little Jimmie Covency comes up and tries a drop kick lor the point alter and — it's good! Now lake over Weymouth High. Curtain. Marge: Even if Weymouth was a bit slow in starting, we ended the season with a smashing victory over Hingham. Ed: Remember the .Athletic Dance, we gave in honor of the team? That was spon- sored by the Student Council. Don't forget. Then too our Christmas Party, under the direction of Miss Pearson, was a success, even though it was post- poned a couple of times. Marge: They gave a play "Why the Chimes Rang" at the Christmas Assembly, which really touched the heart. It was a 1 ttle different from the plays and rallies that have been given other years. Miss Chase directed it. (Enter George McKinney) c^V> Page Nineteen George: Don't forget ii was the Trade School; the) pui up the scenery loi the play. Ed: One of the senior events in Trade School was the election ol officers. Who are the officers, George? George: (blushing) Well, I — a — I'm president, 15.11 Mac Donald is vice president, and Bruce Hallgren is secretary-treasurer. Marge: My, what a modest president the Trade School lias! George: Say, who were the Spelling Bee Champions in your lour years at high school? Ed: Arlene Boeckel in our Freshman Year, Evelyn Newell in our Sophomore Year, Dorothy Perett Junior year, and Dick Whittle this last year. Marge: In January Mr. Jack gave a concert with the choir, band, and orchestra. Marge Abbott and Eleanor McCafferty helped to make it a success. The senior ushers looked attractive in their evening gowns. Ed: The Senior Play came next — "Every Family Has One.'' Ii was one of the best plays presented at W. H. S. The play-reading committee certainly made a wise choice. Marge: This is the first year they had a Play Reading Committee. It's a good idea. I hope they continue it. We certainly uncovered a lot of talent the night of the play. Ginnic Kaiajian certainly stole the show. And, of course we can't forget the job Lambie Koopman did. The whole cast was good: Margie Abbott, Phyllis Vachon, Carol Corridan, Helen Keblis, Betty Paul- son, John Pappas, Russ Shaw, Bob Karnan, Darrell Smith, and jimmie Casey. They all deserve a hand; but the most thanks go to Miss Chase, who directed it. George: There you go again, leavin' out about all the work Trade School did on the Senior Play. Ed: Well, don't leave out Miss Mayo: she did a lot of work on the properties. George: We had a few ex-servicemen start school this year. John Saferian, Alfred LaBrecque, and then Bill Coveney of the famous Coveney family. Marge: Yes, I noticed a lot of servicemen in the classes. George: Yuh, they noticed you, too. Well, see you later kids. Ed: In at the Boston Garden Captain Carleton MacKenzie and his track team won the State Class B Championship. They put Weymouth on the map. Yup, Mr. Page did it again. Marge: Bob Stitt, one of the track standouts, was elected class marshall right about then. Ed: For pastime the kids could go to the Canteen on Saturday nights, and then there was the projection club under the direction of Mr. Ghiorse. Marge: This year the girls had their own volley-ball teams. The varsity basket- ball team won laurels for themselves, being the only team to defeat Rock- land, State Class B Champions. Ed: We ended the season with six wins and eight losses. Coach Gannon missed a game lor the first time in his coaching career at Weymouth. Marge: 1 understand Coach Jim Steele had a good wrestling team this year. Led by Captain Dick Swan. Page Twenty 'X^-' En: The baseball team had a good season, too. Bui let's leave the subjecl of spoils. The Senior Prom was one ol the big events of the year and was really a success. Marge: And now we find ourselves lu re ai the finale of Weymouth High Follies. We'd heller gel out of our caps and gowns; we've got a lot to do. Tonight after the reception we'll he saying good-bye to all this. Let's say il in a big wax. Ed: O.K. I'll call the kids together. (Both exit) Ralph Amabile, Master ol Ceremonies. The curtain again goes up revealing the famous "Weymouth Rockettes" (cheer leaders, drum majorettes) in song and dance entitled "School Daze" with Shirle) Osborn, vocalist. Then a play by none other than the "Brainstormers" famous Broadway Group, (football team) The finale is by the "Harmony Chorus," world famous choirsters (Senior Class) who break out in song as the curtain falls on one of the most important ads of their "Comedy ol Life". Amid the applause, the Class of '46 says good by to all this — and now tomorrow. c^V> Page Twenty-one 1. Dorice Thompson 2. Ann Bttckman 3. Roger Freeman McKenzie 4. Mr. Lyons 5 .

Through the window of a small house a coz) room could be seen. Someone was leaning over the desk at which he had been studying. It was Kurt Konrad, asleep. He stirred; (hen he stood up. Walking as il in a da/e, he 1 weni to the window, threw il open, and started chanting: "Spirit, white and fleet v, Spirit of the powerf ul Apollo, Attend me; lielp me to pred ct The happenings of tommorrow." Alter he had repeated this several times, the form of a handsome youth materialized before the window. "What is it that you wish from me, Spirit of the god of prophecy?" Then Kurt explained that the work of the members of the Prophecy Com- mittee, of which he was chairman, was to predict the future of their classmates. Because of this, he had thought the Spirit might help and had appealed to him. "I will do all I can for you. Follow me into the future," whispered the Spirit, "and I will point out what will be happening ten years from now." Carefully the Spirit led the way through the years to come. Soon he stopped and pointed. "This is 1956," he declared. "Whom do you wish to visit first?" As Kurt mentioned the name of each member of Weymouth High's grad- uating class of 1946, the Spirit showed him what that person was doing. When Kurt returned to the present, he hurriedly called a meeting of the Prophecy Committee and made this report: MAR JORIE ABBOTT Margie can now be seen in a New York radio studio, singing witli one of the big name bands of the year.

"No action whether foul or fair Is ever done, but it leaves somewhere A record written by fingers ghostly As a blessing or a curse, and mostly In the greater weakness or greater strength Of the acts which follow it." hen Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote these lines, he was applying "the record written by fingers ghostly" to the deeds of man himself. They may, however, be applied to the deeds of a nation. Any aetion of a unified country in civil or in foreign affairs, leaves a record in the acts, strong or weak, that follow it. American deeds in foreign policy have been left for all to see. f am looking at that record which begins in the 1700 s and ends at the turn of the nineteenth century. In the years immediately following the Revolutionary War, when we Ameri- cans had just acquired the right to call ourselves a country, our only foreign policy was a desire to secure the recognition of the Old World. This recognition came at a time when we were the least able to accept it. France, in the midst of a war with Eng- land, had sent a representative to us, demanding that we keep our promise of 1778 to aid her. Because we were in an unstable condition as a result of our own revolution, we made a shrewd statement in reply. We contended that we had entered the agree- ment with the former monarch of France, not with the present Jacobin regime. France, however, was not our only challenge. Great Britain, with her trading posts in Canada, and Spain with her control of New Orleans were inciting Indians to re- sist us at every turn. Since we were not strong or united enough to cope with these problems, Washington out of sheer necessity, in his farewell address urged a policy of isolation. In 1812, however, we made an exception to this idea of isolation, when we went to war with England. Neither country desired the conflict, but public opinion over here forced the decision. When the treaty was made two years later, it provided for the return to the conditions which prevailed before the war. The boundary of Canada was fixed, and the Missisippi question was open for negotiation. The real reason for our rejoicing, however, was that the causes of the war were removed. The Indians had been driven back, and Napoleon had fallen. At the conclusion of the wars in Europe, we were free of commitments in the Old World; we had purchased Louisiana and Florida, and were well on the way to expanding these new gains. We considered ourselves ready to go back to our isola- tionism, and to insure this, we published the Monroe Doctrine. The Monroe Doctrine is a statement which has become the cornerstone of our foreign policy. The Doctrine was prompted by the actions of Spain, who was trying to get back her New World Colonies, which had declared their independence. To prevent Spain's obtaining aid from Russia, Austria, Prussia, and France, President Monroe declared that this hemisphere was not open to colonization, and that such an act would be viewed as unfriendly toward the United States. This assertion has had a great influence in all our decisions, especially those concerning wars and treaties. Nevertheless, on several occasions, we have stepped out of the tight little circle which the Monroe Doctrine makes. For many years, we were interested in the rapid expansion of the West, and the necessary industries springing up as a result. It was in these times of great confidence and prosperity that we made our first digression from the Monroe Doctrine. We had been settling on any land that we chose, and when we wanted to annex Texas, Mexico became angry. War followed, and we de- cisively vanquished the Mexicans, in a conflict which might have been averted with <r5Sl> Page Thirty'seven a little diplomacy. Several years later, we did pay Mexico for damages. Bui whal ( an be paid for lives? In the next few years, foreign policy lay forgotten, because internal trouble was fomenting. The question of slavery kept us more to ourselves than ever, and the n tin Civil War broke out. A second step from our voluntary isolation was the purchase ol Alaska. This brought us our first possession which was not attached to our country, and which pushed our influence to the northern Pac.fic. Although this purchase helped to de- velop the importance of the West, there was another reason behind the acquistion. The Russians had been settling there, and as we wanted isolation at any cost, we bought Alaska to prevent foreign influence. Our first major break out of isolation came with our interest in the Latin Amer- ican countries. This interest has continued to the present time, but it is now called, "The Good Neighbor Policy." fames G. Blaine, our fiery Secretary of State, fought to establish a Pan-American Union with all the South American countries. When the Union was formed, Blaine secured a tariff reduction for those Latin American countries which would reduce their tariff rates. These countries were suspicious ol our moves, as well they might be, for we had conquered our own country and were looking for new fields. When our drive to the Pacific had been completed, we had begun to realize that our foreign policy was outgrown. Capital, which had financed the Westward expansion, began to look for new markets. We were steadily acquir- ing more islands in the Pacific ostensibly to be used as coaling stations by our en- larged merchant fleet, which was now tr ading with the Far East on a large sc ale. Our naval fleet too, was increasing. We began to realize the power we had in our resour- ces and trade, and to believe that we were a great nation, capable of exerting our in- fluence throughout the world. With this concept newly formed, it was natural that we became involved in t he- Cuban situation. Our concern lay in the fact that we owned millions of dollars' worth of interest in the sugar, tobacco, and mines of the country. With the Monroe Doctrine in mind, we felt ourselves obliged to help our neighbor Cuba. The insur- rection of the freedom-loving Cubans against their cruel Spanish rulers, was steadily growing more complicated. Neither Spain nor we wished to go to war, for our com- mercial interests were at stake, while Spain might have trouble at home. The Amer- ican newspapers inflamed the people here with reports of the De Lome letter, which maligned President McKinley, and then, the Ma ne was sunk! Without considering what caused the explosion aboard the battleship, the public screamed "Remember the Ma ne!" The President set the question of war to Congress, but did not deem it necessary to add that Spain was ready to give Cuba her freedom. Congress declared war. Our enlarged fleet came into use when we captured the Pacific possessions ol Spain. After this short but dec sive, war, we found ourselves with several new possessions; Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. We were coming out of our isolation. In orre hundred years, Amer'ca had gained recognition, and with this recogni- tion, the power to turn her back on foreign entanglements, declaring that she wished to be left alone. The experiences of the twentieth century would prove the value, wisdom, and strength of this policy in keeping America a world power. "/ do not know beneath what .sky Nor on what seas shall be thy fait. I only know it .shall be high, I only know it .shall be great." Page Thirty-eight 'Xfi^ HIGH-HONOR ESSAY ^American Foreign Policy" Twentieth Century r^V» Page Thirtymine ■Let us now continue the progressive history of our foreign policy beginning with the twentieth century. Since 1900, this policy has been divided into three distinct parts: our action in behalf of our United Stales and the other countries oi this hem- isphere; our interest in the Far East; and our concern in European affairs. In the Americas, we undertook to follow the tenets set forth in the most influential docu- ment, the Monroe Doctrine. As a self-appointed protector oi our less significant neighbors, the United States exerted uncalled powers ovei parts oi Latin Amei ii a. In order to defend those countries and insure our own interests, we forbade nations, such as Germany, England, and Spain, to set foot on that land in accordance with our interpretation of the before-mentioned doc n ine. Also, as a major power in world affairs, our country sent delegates to the Hague Conferences and supported the Hague Court before which all nations might present their disputes lor arbitra- tion. Since the Spanish American War, our attention has been definitely drawn to t lie problems of the Far East. Having gained control ol the Philippines as a result of this war, our country noticed that other nations of the world were busy grasping for influence in China. Their struggles had not concerned us or worried us until we were in a position to request trade with China on an equal looting with the test ol the world. We initiated in China "The Open Door Policy", which guaranteed out equality and prevented China's being split by her more powerful neighbors. This move on our part strengthened our friendship with her. Then as Japan began to enlarge, the United States, seeing an opportunity lor furthur trade, befriended her also. Although Japan was growing more powerful and was expanding, we did not use caution in regard to her. because she seemed so small and dependent. We continued to supply her with all ty pes of ma- terials which she allowed to accumulate over a period of about two decades. Early in the twentieth century, the countries of Latin America began to grow more independent. They resented the arrogant attitude of the United States, and we, realizing their desire to be completely self-reliant, changed the character of our policy, fnstead of being their dominant protector, we entered into an agreement in which all the countries of this hemisphere vowed to help each other in time of need. Our attitude was that of a friendly equal rather than a haughty superior. This be- came known as "Our Good Neighbor Policy." For many years, the United States has taken an indifferent point of view in European affairs. Notwithstanding her active participation in the Hague Confer- ences, she has done everything possible to keep out of foreign entanglements. In 1914, our country was forced into a war, supposedly to end all wars, World War I. Many of our young men were killed beside equally courageous soldiers of different nationalities. Nevertheless, despite this strong bond brought about by our common struggle and subsequent loss, our nation maintained its policy of isolation. In 1918, Woodrow Wilson tried to guide us to the place we had among the nations of the world, but we were not yet ready to declare our hand. The League of Nations was formed without the suport of one of the greatest nations in the world, the United States, although we agreed with most of its aims and principles. However, in order to preserve the peace we had struggled for and prevent an- other war, our country accepted the agreements of the Washington Conference in Page Forty c \S r ' 1921 and the London Conference in 1930, boih prov iding lor Limitations of the na- val power and armament of the principal nations of the world. In 1922, the United States sponsored and signed the Four Power Pad along with Great Britain, France, and Japan; then, later, the Nine Power Pact with involved several smaller nations as well. We were also included in the Pac t of Paris in 1928, supported by fifty-six na- tions and stating that all disputes were to be settled by arbitration only, not by vio- lence or war. Some reciprocal trade agreements that we entered should have made clear our responsibilities as a leading nation of the world. When Franklin Delano Roosevelt came to power, he found us still wary of en- tangling ourselves. During prosperous years our people saw no need to interfere with other nations and borrow trouble; during depression, the whole interest re- volved around maintaining a livelihood. The United States did not build up her armed forces as a measure to protect the agreements she had entered; Japan did not comply with the treaties she had made; other nations broke their promises and di- saster was again hovering over us. Gradually, our nation became aware of the ne- cessity of preparing lor this second great struggle. With the attack on Pearl Harbor, America finally went all out lor war. We became a nation of action then — a nation to demand respect. We realized that new inventions had decreased the size of our protective ocean. Roosevelt had just before formulated the Atlantic Charter with Churchill. Several other important negotiations were carried on between our pres- ident and the leaders of Britain, Russia, and China. Conferences at Moscow, Cairo, Teheran, and San Francisco helped to compose our new policies. At these conferences, the countries of the world laid the foundations for one of the greatest organizations of all times, the United Nations. Now that the war has ended, we have begun to concentrate on making a success of this great union which guarantees peace and security to all countries. There are six principal parts to the organization: the General Assembly, that functions mostly as an adviser; the Securi- ty Council, that has the final say in all matters; the International Court of Justice to settle all judicial questions; the Secretarist, a permanent steering committee; the Econom cs and Social Council, which makes recommendations to the General Assembly that fall under its category; and the Trusteeship Council, consisting of na- tions with trust territories. Every far sighted American realizes that there will be many trials, many dis- agreements, but each hopes that the United Nat.ons will be unified enough to over- come these obstacles. As we have the experiences and the mistakes of the League to profit by, results should prove more extensive than before. An organization, such as this, if loyally supported by every nation, will become a fair judge of international affairs and will guarantee everlasting peace, thus carrying out the principles advoca- ted by our first President, George Washington, when he said, "Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace, and harmony with all". £-^V» Page Forty'onc THE PERFECT SENIOR Girl Boy Hair — Jean Kcohan Hair— John Ries Eyes — Doris Wright Eyes — Robert Stitt Smile — Margaret Kelly Smile — Ralph Amabile Intellect — Martha Nickerson Intellect — Kurt Konrad Cleverness — Lisbcth Koopman Stature — Edmund Caracciolo Dignity — Barbara Loud Dignity — Francis Newcomb Sense of Humor — Jean Stevens Humor — James Casey Disposition — Margaret Kelly Disposition — Ralph Amabile Voice — Eleanor McCafferty Voice — John Pappas Sportsmanship — Jean Keohan Sportsmanship — Bruce Hunt Friendliness — Sara Mapes Clothes — Neil Doherty Clothes — Shirley Osborn Pep — George Curtin Pep — Helen Keblis Dependability — Ralph Amabile Trustworthiness — Mary Mcrten Naivete — Frank Aiello Complexion — Marilyn Mcintosh Complexion — Robert Carter Figure — Helen Keblis Brutality — Richard Gould Page Forty'two SENIOR WHO'S WH( MARJORIE ABBO I I Weymouth Landing College Course "Margie" Senior Play 4; dee C'luli 1. 2; Musical Revue 2; Class History 4; Home Room Messenger 1, 3, 4; Fire Drill Duty 3, 4; Honor:, 1. 3, 4.

BAND The Weymouth High School Band, under the capable baton of Mr. Russell Jack, has ended a most successful season. The activities of the band varied. The group played at assemblies and was present at a great many of the football games during the fall. Also the band partici- pated in two highly praised concerts in January and in May. The success of these concerts was partly due to the good selection of the music by the director, Mr. Jack. Robert McAuliffe was chosen student band master during the year. Our hats are off to the future musicians of Weymouth High.

ORCHESTRA The orchestra completed its season by taking part in the annual Spring Concert. During the school year these student musicians also participated in the Winter Concert and furnished many selections at the Senior Play. With the addition of many new members, the orchestra is becoming more balanced and great improvements are forthcoming. Our gratitude is extended to Mr. Jack and all members of the organization as well as our wish for success in years years to come.

CHOIR The Weymouth High School Choir ended its second successful year under the new- director, Mr. Jack, with a spring concert in which the orchestra and choir together performed well-known selections. This past year has been a busy one for the choir. Besides the spring concert there were also the winter concert and a performance given for the Monday Club. Six members of the choir, along with seven members from the orchestra and band, went to New Britain, Connecticut, where the New England Festival, the first since the close of the war, was held. Members of bands, orchestras, and choirs from all over New England were assembled there, and even though the work was tiring, everyone enjoyed himself. Bigger and better plans in regard to the choir ate being made for next year. Page Seventy *X&^ First Row: P. Vachon, R. Shaw, H. Keblis, R. Karnan, E. Paulson, C. Corridan, Miss Chase; Second Row: V.

The plot centres round the Reardon family, whose eccentricities are hi- larious. The problem of the three Reardon children, Marcia, Penelope, and Warry, provide many amusing moments, but a wise grandmother leaves her Bing Crosby records long enough to straighten everything out.

Although Weymouth started off with a bang in polishing off Rindge Tech, the next four games spread gloom throughout Maroontown for Belmont, Brook- line, Quincy, and North Quincy all grabbed wins from Weymouth. Undaunted, however, Weymouth leaped back to the victory list by smashing Cambridge Latin and Dedham. Next Brockton and Arlington, two of the better class A teams, were forced to fight for every inch as they got by Weymouth. Then Thanksgiving Day came and with it one of the best Hingham elevens of the past few years. No team had scored more than one touchdown against them, and they had decided it was about time to beat Weymouth. The Maroons had other ideas, though, as they battled their way to a thrilling 12 to 6 victory for Coach Paul Sweeney, who was watching his last game as Weymouth's football coach.

BASKETBALL ^Wih a scarcity of veterans, Coach Jack Gannon produced a basketball squad that could dish it out as well as take it. Every game of this six wins and eight losses season provided the fans with action and thrills. Features of the year were a lopsided Hingham defeat, a close call over North Quincy, and the game that made the whole South Shore sit up and take notice — that is the upset of the now class B champions of the state, Rockland. This was Rockland's only Mass- achusetts defeat, Weymouth's biggest victory.

Yes, the baseball team is making a name for itself this year. Up to date the maroons have four straight victories won from North Quincy, Quincy, Braintree, and Milton. Back from the war and out of the United States Navy is Coach Harry Arlanson. Under his capable eyes the candidates for the baseball team played many inter-squad games, giving him a chance to see what everyone could do and therefore form the best first team. This team now includes: John Coyle, Pitcher Kenneth Munroe, Pitcher Jack Brady, Catcher Bud Daly, First Base John Pecoraro, Second Base Fred Loud, Third Base Jimmy Coveney, Right Field Ralph Amabile, Centre Field Dick Liva, Left Field Don Sybertz, Short Stop Page Seventy'four Front Row: Robert Cunniff, Lawrence Dwyer; Second Row: Frank Aiello, Gerald Hackett, John Bennett, Richard Swan (Captain), Robert Claflin, Edward DeLuca; Third Row: Robert Laneau (Manager), Gregory Macri (Junior Manager;) George Sargent, Donald St. Peter, Darrel Wicken, Sam Christie, Sherman Rushton, Coach James Steele. WRESTLING ^^restling, coached by Mr. Steele, gained popularity this year by leaps and bounds. In eight exciting matches the Weymouth grapplers polished off Per- kins Institute twice, Needham twice, and Worcester Academy once, while bowing to Andover, Exeter and Milton Academy. Crowds of fans (especially girls) were attracted to the home contests to see such muscle men as "Ripper" Ben- nett and Captain "Diver" Swan in action. They were well rewarded by seeing Bennett, a junior, add to his last year's string of wins to make it thirteen straight. The first team consisted of: 110 lb. Class — Dick Swan, captain 121 lb. Class — Jack Bennett, captain-elect 128 lb. Class — Gerry Hackett 135 lb. Class — Don St. Peter, Bob Boudreault 145 lb. Class — Herb Claflin 155 lb. Class — Joe DiLorenzo 165 lb.

WINTER TRACK Under the watchful eyes of Coach Oral Page, and paced by fleet looted Dick Liva, Weymouth's winter runners enjoyed a most successful season. In dual meets Boston College High, Dedham (twice) , Brooklinc, and Huntington Prep all felt the sting of defeat as Weymouth grabbed first straight wins. In the Northeastern Meet, which brings together many of the smaller col- leges and larger high schools, and is held at the Boston Y. M. C. A., "Weymouth, made a strong showing. The victory of the year came when Weymouth invaded Boston Gardens to race against all the other class B teams in eastern Massachusetts. By superb power of a well-balanced team, Weymouth brought home the championship trophy for the third time in four years. Page Seventy-six < \j^ First Row: Coach Oral Page, C. Masison, F. Newcomb, D.

SPRING TRACK ^ViiEN the snow had melted and spring was here for good, Coach Oral Page took his track team from the boards of Libby Field to the cinders of Legion Field. With unusual strength in every event the maroons are making it tough for all the opposition as their excellent winter record is continued. This year's South Shore meet will be bigger and therefore more exciting than last year's due to the addition of three more schools; namely, Quincy, North Quincy, and Brockton. Following this comes the toughest test of the year, the state meet held at Newton, in which every runner exerts every ounce of his strength and skill. May the future track teams of Weymouth continue the good records of sportmanship and victories as those of the past.

However, this year's team, under the coaching of Mr. Page, has made the fans take an in- terest, so excellent is their record. Nine times Weymouth raced in dual meets, and nine times they brought home victory. Facing much tougher conditions in the state meet at Franklin Park, Weymouth placed fourth among twelve schools. To name certain members of the team as "stars" woidd be wrong for everyone in the above picture deserves equal credit for this great season.

CHESS CLUB The national resurgence toward chess is reflected in the strong interest in the game at Weymouth High School. Although many learned the game from their "GI" brothers or fathers, a number were taught by the club sponsor, Mr. David Matthews. The Round Robin Tournament gave opportunity for each member to compete against the various styles of play acquired by each of the players. Refer- ence books were used for observation of the methods of the grand masters of chess. These, together with individual instruction in the openings and checkmates b" Mr. Matthews, laid a basis for sound developement in play and future success in the sport. The group should be ready for interscholastic participation next year. The officers and members were: Robert McCarthy, President Robert Marr, Vice-President Allan Patterson, Secretary Ronald Bresnahan, Treasurer Clayton Brown, James Chase, Ralph Colletta, Jr., Lars Egon, Roald Heitman, Robert Rosa, Charles Mclntire, Donald Nichols, Thomas Petze, Donald Ramsay, Doris Robinson. £^SV» Page Seventy'nine Left to Right : Margaret Kelly and Shirley Osborn co-eaptains, Helen Keblis, Jean Keohan, Barbara Loud, Priscilla Schlusemeyer, Jean Walsh, Barbara Dwyer. JL his past year the cheerleaders of Weymouth High have proved themselves solidly behind their various athletic teams.' At each football game they were seen, rain or shine, cheering for the boys. Their attractive maroon and gold outfits added much to their action. The cheer- leaders were also present at many of the basketball games showing their great spirit and sportsmanship. The entire scpiad also attended the Winter State Track. Meet at the Boston Garden and were honored with a special invitation to be present at a track meet held at the Fargo Barracks in Boston. The able co-captains were Margie Kelly and Shirley Osborn, whose duties were to conduct many of the student rallies and turn out a capable line of cheerleaders. In all, there arc five seniors leaving this year and making way lor an almost complete new group to be led by Priscilla Schlusemeyer. We extend good luck to Priscilla and the coming cheerleaders.
